Assumption, your system uses the same signals as my linux box.

`man 7 signal`
       Signal     Value     Action   Comment
       SIGKILL       9       AEF     Kill signal
       The letters in the  "Action"  column  have  the  following

       A      Default action is to terminate the process.
       E      Signal cannot be caught.
       F      Signal cannot be ignored.
Usually this means someone explicitly called `kill -9 your_process`, I don't
know of the kernel ever using this signal without it being sent with a kill
command. In most systems only you and root can do that to your process, so
start with those people. :)
Find out who and why.
